Ballycrovane is an Ogham stone
Standing at 5.3 metres high the stone is believed to be the tallest ogham stone in Europe. It would certainly rank amongst one of the most beautiful. It stands like a modern piece of sculpture overlooking Kenmare Bay. According to Macallister R.A.S. The inscription reads: "MAQI-DECCEDDAS AVI TURANIAS", meaning "son of Deich descendant of Torainn" The monolith is thought to be a bronze age standing stone with the ogham added at a later date. Superb site and location.
The stone is on private property, the cache is outside private property and is accessible very easy.
